I don’t usually post TED talks. It isn’t because they aren’t often interesting or thought-provoking. It’s more because the whole concept of TED gets under my skin in some ways. “Look! A series of mini-lectures to tickle the brains of those who have the leisure to engage with them for a few minutes and the money to hire thinkers to assuage their boredom.”
Yes, I can get quite cynical.
This one I am posting, however, because I think it makes one of the clearest statements of humanism I’ve ever heard. Enjoy.
